Music has been Halie Sawyers’ passion since she first started belting out tunes as a child. But it was not until she joined the Kentucky 4-H Performing Arts Troupe and Leadership Board that the Todd County native learned how her passion could transform her into a leader and guide her to a future career path.

“Becoming a member of the troupe was one of the best decisions I have ever made,” Sawyers said. “It has helped me grow as a leader, a musician and a person.”

More than 300 Kentucky young people will become “style engineers” this summer, thanks to a grant Kentucky 4-H received from HughesNet and the National 4-H Council.

The Style Engineers—Fashion through Science program will show 4-H’ers at University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service day and residential camps how fashion design is connected to science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The curriculum includes real-world activities to emphasize these fields.
